Danny Granger's status with the 76ers could be resolved on Tuesday. That's when the franchise may announce whether or not the 6-foot-9 forward, who was acquired in Thursday's trade with the Indiana Pacers, will remain with the team. Granger wants to play for an NBA championship contender, according to sources. And there's a belief the Sixers will negotiate a buyout of what's left of his expiring contract (about $4 million) to accommodate the former all-star. He must be on a postseason-bound team's roster by Saturday in order play in the playoffs. "The discussions, the meetings are continuing" with Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie, coach Brett Brown said before Monday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center. "I spoke with [Granger] yesterday."
